Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Two drummers

As others have pointed out, I feel the whole two drummer thing needs to be split into pre- and post-hiatus. Pre-hiatus two drummer Dead was great to my ears; songs like The Eleven and St. Stephen just wouldn't be the same, maybe not even possible, without two drummers. The rhythms and counter-rhythms of Phil and the drummers are part of the driving entity which makes the early sound so primal and forceful.
